God has given you the power to create your own prosperity, wealth, and success.
This sermon article contains 5 very powerful spiritual laws of wealth plus several keys to divine prosperity.
Your prosperity and wealth is important to God.
I’ll say that again. Your prosperity and wealth is important to God.
Carefully examine the following verse; note my emphasis.
“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.” (Psalm 35:27)
So, God has pleasure in your prosperity. In other words, when you are prosperous, He is happy.
Think about that.
Actually, one reason I want to prosper, and enjoy divine prosperity and wealth is because it brings pleasure to God.
Here’s another verse showing God’s attitude towards the prosperity of His children. Again, carefully note my emphasis:
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” (3 John 1:2)
I always paraphrase the above verse thus, “Beloved, there are so many things that I wish for you, but above them all I wish that you prosper and be in health.”
It matters to God that you, as His child, be prosperous. Your groveling in the dust, worried about how to pay the bills, barely managing to get by, and feeding from hand to mouth does not pleasure God at all.
Your prosperity and wealth is important to God.”
The anointing of God that came on Jesus Christ is a poverty-killer
Did you know that the first category of people targeted by the Messiah’s anointing were the poor?
Well, read it for yourself below:
“”The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. “” (Luke 4:18-19)
As you can see from my emphasis in the above verses, four people groups are listed as targets for emancipation by the anointing on Jesus Christ:
- The poor
- The prisoners
- The blind
- The oppressed
But observe also that the poor were listed first! The first enemy marked for destruction by that anointing was poverty. This is no coincidence.
If God delights in the prosperity of His servants, He must be grieved by their poverty.
God loves the poor, but He sure hates their poverty and wretchedness!
The anointing of God that came on Jesus Christ is a poverty-killer. If you are a child of God, if Jesus Christ is Saviour and Lord in your life, then you have absolutely no business with lack and wretchedness.”
You have the power to create prosperity for yourself
The anointing of God within you – that is, the presence of the Holy Spirit of God in you – means that you have the POWER (potential and capacity) to break free from the yoke of poverty and soar to new heights of refreshing divine supernatural prosperity and wealth.
This is because an important result of the presence of the Holy Spirit in your life is POWER – that is, your ability to transform your circumstances!
“But you will receive POWER when the Holy Spirit comes on you…”” (Acts 1:8a)
When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you don’t receive religion, emotionalism, or empty gibberish. You receive POWER!!!
And one of the purposes of divine power is to get wealth.
“But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee POWER TO GET WEALTH…” (Deuteronomy 8:18)
God has deposited His power within you for many reasons, one of which is to GET WEALTH. Within you lies the POWER TO GET WEALTH, to create your own prosperity .
You have the POWER to transform your circumstances. That power is within your inner man. You are not a victim, so for God’s sake quit thinking and whining like one!
From the following verse, we note that prosperity is a cardinal function of the anointing.
“…You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.” (Psalms 23:5b)
Because my head is anointed with oil – a symbol of the Holy Spirit, the presence of God – my cup overflows.
An overflowing cup symbolizes abundant prosperity and wealth. It is the opposite of being in lack, wallowing in the despair and frustration of being continuously broke and in debt.
Yes, God wants your cup to overflow. He wants you to enjoy His prosperity and wealth in your life; that’s why He anoints your head with oil.
So, why are so many cups empty in the among God’s children?
Why do many of God’s children, who have the Holy Spirit, and thus the power to get wealth, live in abject poverty and wretchedness? Why is it that many whose heads have been anointed with oil have empty cups?
The answer is simply because of the violation of the following vital spiritual principles.”
5 of the most powerful spiritual keys to create your own prosperity and wealth.
“Spiritual Key #1: Submit to God
“Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you.” (Job 22:21)
God is the absolute Ruler of this Universe. If you claim to be His child and yet consistently flout His natural and universal laws, you deceive yourself.
To submit to God has very little to do with the various rituals and ceremonies with which the religious masses deceive themselves into thinking they are worshipping God.
True submission to God can only happen when you learn, understand, and master His natural and spiritual laws. When you submit to divine laws, you are submitting to God, thereby ATTRACTING PROSPERITY AND WEALTH.
God is inseparable from His WORD (laws).
There are natural laws governing the creation and attraction of prosperity and wealth. You have the power to obey and apply these laws, but you must know what they are!
Spiritual Key #2: Delight yourself in the Lord
“Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalms 37:4)
TO delight yourself in the LORD refers to a love affair with Him! It means ‘fall in love with the Lord.’ This has to do with fellowship and intimacy with the Lord.
You see, when you are in love with the Lord, it will lead to intimacy with Him, then spiritual intercourse. And guess what?
Something beautiful happens…
He gives you the desires of your heart!
Actually, this doesn’t mean that He’ll give you the things that you desire, such as money and stuff. It rather means that He’ll place desires in your heart. He’ll plant dreams, goals, and visions in your heart!
When you delight yourself in the Lord, it means that you are in love with Him. This will ultimately lead to intimacy and intercourse wherein He plants divine sperm (dreams and visions) within you.
But eventually, you will need the ‘know-how’ to translate these dreams and visions into realities, which is why you need the third spiritual key.
Spiritual Key #3: Tune into the inspiration of God within you
“But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.” (Job 32:8)
The inspiration of God lies within you. You must learn to tune into it for guidance and breakthrough ideas.
Whereas many religious folks have mastered how to make their requests known to God through religious prayers and rituals, only very few have learnt how to hear God’s ideas (wisdom) within them.
This is not surprising as majority of human beings are too busy blindly and lazily following the manipulative ideas of others, that they have no room for the voice of God within their own spirits.
When you delight yourself in the Lord, he places dreams and visions in your heart. But you must learn to tune into His inspiration within you for ideas, plans and strategies to translate those dreams and visions into realities.
“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it. “” (Isaiah 30:21)
Many have dreams and visions but are groping in the darkness of ignorance and foolishness, all in the name of trying to achieve their dreams. The result is disappointment and frustration. But when you learn to tune into the inspiration of God within your spirit, you discern the way to make your dreams happen.
I heard someone tell recently of how he took time to get quiet and listen to the inspiration within. “I got an idea that gave me four million dollars in just one hour,” he said.
Think about it. One breakthrough idea is more than enough to give you the life of your dreams.
However, every genuine inspiration from God will create the need to apply the fourth spiritual key.
Spiritual Key#4: Give!
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. “” (Luke 6:38)
The above instruction, of course, comes from Jesus Christ Himself. According to Jesus Christ, prosperity and wealth – the kind I’m writing about here – are not measured in terms of how much you possess, but rather in terms of how much you give.
The presence of Jesus Christ within you means that you have a lot to offer your world. Don’t expect to prosper if all you know to do is take and take and take, without giving anything in return.
If I may ask, what are your unique contributions and gifts to the human family? A lot of people are on welfare, living off the labour and sweat of other hardworking persons.
If you want to release your prosperity genius, you must switch from the mindset of consumption, to that of contribution.
When I say contributions, I mean the products and services that emerge from your talents and skills. These should be deployed towards the benefit of your fellow human beings if you must attract prosperity.
To give means to put your skills, talents, and abilities to work to create beneficial products and services for others.
Prosperity will ultimately come to you if and when you invest time and energy, plus other resources, to translate your talents and abilities into products and services for the welfare of the human family.
That’s how it works.
Whatever you use your talents, skills, etc. to do for others is a product. However, you must be consistent and organized in the creating and delivering of your numerous products.
So, you already have products and services, but:
- Are they organized?
- Are they being delivered consistently and diligently?
- Are you constantly improving the quality of the content and delivery of these products and services?
At the end of the day, you need the fifth spiritual key as the glue that binds them all together.
#5. Be thankful
Don’t become blind to your present blessings. You are already prosperous. There are so many blessings of God in your life for which you should be thankful.
“Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish.” (John 6:11)
Jesus had only 5 loaves and two fishes to feed a crowd of over 5000 starving men, women, and children. Yet He didn’t complain about His meager resources. He rather looked up to heaven and gave thanks to God.
Thanksgiving is a great multiplier of resources. You will easily attract prosperity and wealth into your life if you maintain a constant attitude of genuine and sincere gratitude.
Give thanks to God for the life you have, for your family, and for the beauty of His creation that surrounds you. Give thanks to God for your job or business even if the income isn’t yet at the level you desire.
Beloved, the anointing of God within you – the presence of the Holy Spirit of God in you – means that you have the POWER (potential and capacity) to break free from the yoke of poverty and soar to new heights of refreshing divine supernatural prosperity and wealth.
I encourage you to carefully master and diligently apply the 5 spiritual keys I’ve shared here in order to create your own prosperity and wealth.
God bless you.
